Bugaboo Bee looks good in denim

I’ve noticed something recently. Whenever I meet other parents who, like me, own a Bugaboo Bee, before any words are exchanged, there’s always the same knowing look, a glance that says, “Yes, this stroller is amazing – why don’t more people know about it?” It’s easy to miss the Bee. In general, mid-size strollers are not a very popular category ... Read More »

Stokke PramPack: a safer voyage for strollers

The first time we flew with a stroller, it came off the plane broken. I was in LA for a wedding, and I remember frantically canvassing the shops in Beverly Hills to find a replacement — and this was before babies were a must-have celebrity accessory. The first time I flew with a double stroller, we nearly missed our connecting ... Read More »

Quinny Zapp Xtra sparkles

Way back when we were first getting started with Magic Beans, Quinny was this European enigma. Their strollers weren’t available in the USA, so we could only ogle the pictures we saw from overseas and wonder if they were as good as they looked. They eventually crossed the pond, and Quinny has been steadily tweaking their designs to appeal to ... Read More »

2011 BOB Revolution SE has arrived

You just don’t mess with success. This was the first thing I thought when I saw a sample of the newly redesigned BOB Revolution stroller more than a year ago. Sure, there’s always room for improvement, but they had such a good thing going. The Revolution stroller has been a rock-solid performer and a parent-favorite for years. Why tinker with ...

phil&teds recalls Sport V2 and Classic V1 buggies

This week, phil&teds announced a voluntary recall-to-repair of their Sport V2 and Classic V1 strollers. The hinges can pose an amputation and laceration hazard if fingertips are inserted while the stroller is folding or unfolding. The phrase “amputation hazard” is chilling, but if you can just keep your fingers away from the stroller’s hinges during opening and closing, you’ll be ... Read More »

Orbit Baby G2 Upgrade Program

Orbit Baby launched their new Sidekick at the ABC Show, perfect for parents who bought into the Orbit Baby system with their first child and are now expecting baby #2. Their innovative wheeled board design looks more like a skateboard than a traditional wheeled board, and it sits over to one side, creating less interference with the parent pushing the ...

Hello, Bugaboo Donkey

Update: 9/30/2011: The Bugaboo Donkey Stroller is now in stock and available for purchase at Magic Beans! Free Shipping on all configurations! Bugaboo today unveiled their new double stroller, the Bugaboo Donkey. I have to confess, I did see the Donkey when I was in Amsterdam in April, but I was bound by a non-disclosure agreement. However, with the debut ... Read More »

Maclaren introduces redesigned frame

Maclaren is currently rolling out (haha) a “next generation” stroller frame with a redesigned hinge mechanism. The new design features a circular pivoting hinge and totally eliminates any risk of pinching during folding and unfolding. My sources at Maclaren USA tell me this new hinge has been in the works for several years and is a logical design evolution, not ... Read More »

phil&teds announces new Explorer buggy

The phil&teds Sport – the granddaddy of the in-line stroller revolution – has been discontinued and will be replaced by the new phil&teds Explorer, which is expected to arrive in stores within the next few weeks. Six years ago, we were one of just a handful of retailers in the USA who carried the phil&teds stroller. Back then there was ... Read More »

Giveaways Day 25 – Baby Jogger City Select stroller

From the very first moment I saw an advertisement for it, I knew the Baby Jogger City Select stroller was going to be an inevitable success. The double stroller market has seen more fluctuation than any other category over the past few years, as the proverbial pendulum made a broad but definitive swung from side-by-side all-terrain models like the Mountain ...
